Hey All,
My company is U.S. based and has been growing pretty quick adding people all over the U.S. We have started adding people in a few other countries. How do you all handle ordering / configuration of new hardware for international offices and "remote" working out of their home employees in other countries.

Our users are a mix of Windows, Mac and Linux on their desktop so the solution could be about any of them.

I have talked to our Dell and CDW reps and they recommend just having the items shipped to me. But it seems silly to have to have it all shipped to the U.S. configure it, box it back up and ship it out. Feels like there should be a better way. Then on top of that I need to make sure I buy and send the correct power chargers and keyboards for said country.

Thanks

My wife over heard a woman at the Science Center while staring at a model of the Solar System tell her kid "Pluto that's not a planet they decided it was a Sun."

Holy crap this is funny and awesome and so true! I don't run but many of my other hobbies work the same way. I climb, road/mountain bike to silence the world around me. To force myself to focus on 1 thing or nothing at all. Well said Sir, well said.

Hey All,
I am looking for some good ideas for hardening wifi connections. Yes WEP is bad. You can hide an SSID but that is easily found using air sniffers like kismac and Mac address filtering isn't to hard to bypass / fake either. What ways do you guys use to harden a wifi connection?

I was considering setting up a subnet the wifi DHCP would hand out but only allow it to get to 1 server (a VPN)  So you would have to connect to the wifi then tunnel through the VPN before you can get to anything. But that seems like a lot of hoops for a user to jump through. My solution needs to be Mac,Linux,Windows friendly.

Thanks

My neighbors had several trees cut down. I got most of it and have been getting it all moved and split for next winter. I decided to try out a holz hausen for the fun of it.

Everything awesome put into 1 movie:

"The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida’s narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice."

I think this person and my wife feel the same way about Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I don't care for them but my wife is an addict. And every year she says no then I find starbucks cups in the car, under the couch, in the bathroom. It's worse than a college frat house after a party.
